MicroNeedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device
with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and
elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
May sound like an intimidating procedure, no thanks to the word "needle" in its name , but the treatment can be considered
a more effective way to do a facial—aside from the numbing cream involved.
The treatment creates micro-punctures from the needles in our skin and the body treats as a small wound the same
way as a large wound, then sends fibroblasts to create more collagen in the affected area.
We are basically tricking our skin into thinking it has been wounded, but as a result, we're thickening the skin and
improving the texture with this procedure.
It's great for acne scarring, and because it doesn't use heat, it's safe for all skin colors and types.
The treatment is wonderful for smoothing out skin too, also those small bumps from clogged pores,
it can help to clear all of that up as well.
It's such a safe procedure, and is great for filling in acne scars. Of course, the idea of getting needles inserted into your
face for the sake of skincare can seem intimidating, but if you've seen the before and after shots, there's no questioning
the treatment's effectiveness, and instead of using injectable fillers to repair an indented area, the process kick-starts
your body's own natural collagen production to heal the skin on its own.
